Aquatic Therapy


Our goals with pool therapy are to improve function, increase range of motion and help with pain management. We work towards encouraging patients to continue with pool activity by enrolling in community pools such as the YMCA, YWCA or Sticht Center when finished at Medical Plaza - Miller (formerly CompRehab Plaza).

Pool Description

Our pool is a heated 7' X 15' pool with temperatures ranging from 92 degrees to 94 degrees F. There are steps up to the pool and into the water or a lift if needed. The pool is divided into one end at 4 and 1/2 feet and the other end is at 5 and 1/2 feet deep.

A person whom a Physician refers for aquatic therapy may range from one with chronic pain or fibromyalgia to one with a replacement after trauma. A physical therapist evaluation is required first with a prescription from a physician.


Bathing suits are encouraged but we will accept shorts (no cutoff jeans or cotton clothing) and a t-shirt (no cotton). Water/deck shoes or flip flops are also encouraged. We do ask that you do not have on oils, lotions, or perfumes prior to pool treatment as well as no jewelry. We do supply towels, showers and lockers but no locks.
